ESG Book’s impact
ESG Book is clearly contributing to the positive transformation of the economy, providing financial actors with the capacity to better invest towards ESG performing actors and have an actual impact on reaching global targets. It also provides means to comply with the regulation, starting with SFDR in Europe for instance.
ESG Book is focused on providing enabling impact, not being directly involved in the “physical economy”. In this context, it is aligned with one of the three major goals that were settled by the United Nations in the Paris Agreement. It also contributes to many United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, having a transversal impact on them, but with focus on the coordination ones, being SDGs 16, 15, 13 and 8.
